PLAGIARISM
IS STUPID
SO SAYS JONATHAN BAILEY
IN THE MARCH 24,
2010 EDITION OF PLAGIARISM TODAY. IN FACT, ALL IDEAS AND
QUOTES IN THIS SLIDE SHOW ARE THE WORK OF JONATHAN
BAILEY AND FROM HIS ARTICLE TITLED “THE STUPIDITY OF
PLAGIARISM”.
WHY IS IT
STUPID?
YOU ASK
IT’S CALLED GOOGLE
(And here at North, TurnItIn.com)
You found it, so can anyone else!
(including your teachers,
professors, and the authors and
creators you are stealing from)
RUSSIAN ROULETTE
The odds of getting caught
increase quickly the more you
plagiarize.
THE REALLY DUMB PART
“The plain truth is that, when one
plagiarizes, they undertake a huge
risk but gain almost nothing in return.
The time it takes to provide attribution
to content is insignificant compared
to the time it takes to find the work in
the first place.”
BOTTOM LINE
“If you are plagiarizing as a shortcut,
you are wasting your time. If you are
plagiarizing to cover up your own
perceived deficiencies, you’ll more
likely find yourself arousing
suspicion.”
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
1.Read the information!
2. Put the text away, and take short
notes in your own words.
3. Practice the “art and habit” of
using your own words.
4. Have confidence in your ability to
create your own work.
5. Give credit! NoodleTools, EasyBib!
